WIAW: Cape Cod

Like most Bostonians, I love my vacations in Cape Cod. I love the sights, the sounds, the smells, but most of all, I love the food. If there was one catagory of food that I could eat every single day for the rest of my life it would be seafood. Fish, clams, lobster, sushi, I love it all!!
Now I have been going to the Cape every summer for my whole life. Sometimes several times a summer. Because of that I have some favorite restaurants that I always try to hit up when I’m in the area.

Over the 3 days we were on vacation we ate some pretty incredible food.

Peas and Crayons


Every morning we get breakfast and take it to rock harbor. This trip we discovered a new bagel place called Jomama’s. They have amazing breakfast sandwiches and wraps. We went both mornings so I got to try 2 different creations.


The Western Ham, Red Pepper, Onion &  Cheddar Cheese Omelet on a sundried tomato bagel


This breakfast was pretty epic! It was the perfect balance of met, veggies, and bread and there were soo many flavors to savor!



Veggie Lovers – (Tomato, Scallion, Roasted Red Peppers, Avocado, & Muenster Omelet) on an everything bagel


The avocado was amazing in the sandwich and I will certainly be using it when I make my own at home. The only problem with this one was that the everything bagel really overpowered the omelet. I definitely should have gotten it on either a whole grain or their sundried tomato bagel.



Sir. Crickets is an amazing  seafood shack in Orleans. They are famous for their fried clams and chowder so of course, we had to stop there on our trip.


God I love seafood!



We were on the Cape for 2 night. The first night we headed to a pub called Land Ho to get some food and watch the Bruins (they ended up sweeping Pittsburgh that night!) We weren’t particularly starving so we split a plate of fish and chips.



Fish and chips is a pretty hard thing to mess up, so it’s always a safe bet. And eating fish at a place where you can see and feel the ocean just makes it taste 100% better.

Our second dinner was over the fire, so please excuse the photos.



Nolan cooked up some buffalo chicken and hot dogs over the fire.

IMAG5836I think that if I had my way I would grill all of my food. That smoky flavor and char that if gives food is just fantastic. And the smell? It’s intoxicating. Cooking over a fire always makes me feel good about myself. Like if I was ever stranded somewhere (with a lighter) I could easily feed myself. haha

And of course, no meal cooked over a fire would be complete without a giant marshmallow for dessert. And I do mean giant!

IMAG5798Unfortunately we left them on the picnic table overnight and the raccoon ate them. 🙁

My only regret from the weekend was not going to the Ice Cream Cafe for some delicious soft serve. Luckily I plan to be down the Cape a few times this summer. 🙂

Question of the Day:

What is your favorite seafood dish?

    I agree with SO many things in the post! I too could most definitely eat seafood everyday for the rest of my life. Love it. Eating said seafood when you can see/smell/hear the ocean DOES make it 100% better. And if there is a campfire there needs to be marshmallows…:)

    I’ve never been to Cape Cod but it’s on my list:)

    It all looks delicious – especially that second breakfast sandwich. My favorite seafood dish? Very difficult – if sushi doesn’t count, coconut shrimp takes the cake. 🙂

    Those bagels look so AMAZING! Love both of the combos that you got and totally agree that sometimes a everything bagel can be overpowering, but they’re so good at the same time. Like you, I love all seafood! Lately I’ve been eating a lot of cold seafood salads. SO GOOD!

    So jealous of all your delicious looking eats! Nothing beats fresh seafood 🙂 I haven’t had fish and chips since last November, but they were definitely amazing. And now I’m craving them again!
